There has been considerable progress in the development of academic and transfer pathways for cybersecurity; however, the evolution of cybersecurity as a career within organizations has made it difficult to define a career pathway for cybersecurity. The CyberSeek Career Pathway portal is one example of the latest effort to identify entry-, mid-, and advanced-level cybersecurity jobs and apply the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework to help individuals identify the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for career advancement. Nonetheless, pathways efforts are often frustrated by the lack of an integrated or comprehensive approach for students, educators, job-seekers, and employers. The Pathways System Framework, introduced in this webinar, provides a structure that supports the development and implementation of sustainable career and STEM pathways systems. Topics covered will include:

  • Defining career and life readiness
  • Building a career development model
  • Creating dynamic pathway programs
  • Collaborating meaningfully with employer and community organizations and across education and workforce partners

Join us for this webinar where we will explore how to build a career pathways system for cybersecurity, share existing academic and career pathways for cybersecurity, and demonstrate the CyberSeek Career Pathway portal.
